“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is a political statement about Obama Kill List, say directors

captain-america-the-winter-soldierA MotherJones article by Asawin Suebsaeng dated Friday, April 4, 2014 starts out:

“There are currently no plans to screen Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the White House, as far as the film’s directors have heard. But if it makes it to the White House family theater, President Obama would be watching one big-budget, action-packed, and Scarlett Johansson-starring critique of his controversial terror-suspect “kill list.”

This isn’t me reading things into a mainstream comic-book movie. It’s what the directors themselves will tell you.

“[Marvel] said they wanted to make a political thriller,” Joe Russo, who directed the film with his brother Anthony, tells Mother Jones. “So we said if you want to make a political thriller, all the great political thrillers have very current issues in them that reflect the anxiety of the audience…That gives it an immediacy, it makes it relevant. So [Anthony] and I just looked at the issues that were causing anxiety for us, because we read a lot and are politically inclined. And a lot of that stuff had to do with civil liberties issues, drone strikes, the president’s kill list, preemptive technology”—all themes they worked into the film, working closely with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.”

LA Times: Box office -“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” soars.

It is interesting that both liberals and conservatives are flocking to the movie, showing a rare instance of agreement about our government’s unbridled use of pre-emptive “murder” anywhere in the world.  Forget the rule of law where people are innocent until proven guilty.  We just have to trust that the NSA, DOJ and Mr. Obama have their facts in order and that anyone that is on a kill list is really guilty – Judge, Jury and Executioner.

How long can you tolerate this?

“Mother Jones Magazine”, a better alternative to mainstream magazines

That’s the title—that’s the question of a new exposé by Mother Jones that may shock anyone who drinks out of plastic bottles, gives their children plastic sippy cups or eats out of plastic containers.

For years, public campaigns have been waged against plastic containing BPA, Bisphenol-A, a controversial plastic additive. But a new investigation by Mother Jones magazine has revealed that chemicals used to replace BPA may be just as, if not more, dangerous to your health than their cousin compound.
